The Last Five Years is a musical written by Jason Robert Brown.
The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie's is told in chronological order. The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect.
